Just 2 weeks after my first marathon I was headed to Baltimore for a half marathon. I did do a local 5k the week before but that was almost the only running I had done so I was pretty nervous. It was the 2nd half of the Maryland Double and we all know I love bonus bling LOL.
I flew down Friday afternoon and was picked up at the airport by Jeff, Alicia and Aiden. We headed directly to the expo. The expo was nice and not super crowded so we got our stuff, wandered around and got all KT taped.
After the expo I checked into the hotel, left Jen's name at the desk so she and Danielle could get a key if they got there before I got back. The Littwin's and I went to dinner and shopping at the sugar store.

Jen and I just kept running along, I wasn't taking pictures because I was feeling lazy LOL She took some but she has not put them on Facebook for me to steal yet. There are some good ones from along the course that I did buy.
Once we finished we saw Alicia, walked forever to get our medals and food and then I went to get my bonus bling. Jen also had to take a pit stop at the medical tent because she rolled her ankle AFTER we crossed the finish line LOL I was getting texts about Danielle's progress so we knew when she was about to cross. Alicia and I headed over and got as close as we could to get a picture and cheer for her.
|Bonus points if you know why I had to pose here.|
I genuinely don't mind hanging out in the airport so I just waited for my flight and headed home. Besides the flight from Baltimore to Long Island is less than an hour.
When I got home, after saying hi to Tom and the kitties I took a picture of all the bling from the Maryland Double. Fredericks in May and Baltimore in October. (There is a 3rd for the King Crab but I missed that one in June) I also had a great suprise from my running bestie Kim AKA Barking Mad About Running . It was part birthday present and part marathon present and I couldn't love it more.
Still to come....Rock n Roll Philly and Marine Corps Marathon Weekend.
